Today’s ride has us heading north on the Summit Bike and Hike from the Route 303 Trailhead. Our destination is Bridal Veil Falls in the Cleveland Metro Parks’ Bedford Reservation. Following the trail through the ledges, we stop to enjoy the vistas of Brandywine Falls. We climb the trail and pass into Cuyahoga County at Alexander Road. The Cleveland Metro Parks Multi-purpose Trail takes us into the Bedford Reservation. We follow the reservation’s bike trail to the Bridal Veil Falls overlook where we take in our second waterfall of the day. We turn our bikes south and cycle back to the Route 303 trailhead.
